Mark co-founded Rehkamp Larson Architects with his wife Jean in 2000 following his entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to design. After receiving a B.A. from St. Olaf College, Mark earned his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota in 1992. Prior to founding the office, he worked in the offices of Vince James, The Leonard Parker Associates, Julie Snow Architects and HGA. Mark is the recipient of the 2016 Architect of Distinction Award from AIA Minnesota. He also received the AIA Young Architect Award in 2005, and was described as having “a growing dedication and an intensity for enlightening those around him about the discipline and delight of architecture.” Mark is a licensed architect in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nevada and Oregon.

Mark is committed to collaborating with other professionals in the community to better connect people with architecture. He has served as Chair of the AIA Minnesota Residential Architecture Committee, steering committee member of the Architecture and the Psyche Symposium, and jury panelist of various local and national residential design competitions. In 2003/04, Mark co-presented lectures on Carl Jung’s house at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the International Jungian Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Mark has lectured locally on cabins, renovations and the design process. He enjoys the opportunity to mentor students and is currently assisting in the development of an architecture course at St. Olaf College.

When not at the drawing board, Mark can be found at the tiller of a sailboat, plein air oil painting, or behind the lens of a camera.
